Removal of marley tiles
Do you have to take up marley tiles before laying amtico flooring in a small hall, also does it need to be screeded.Thanks

You can leave them in place,self levelling compound can be used to help with any defects......But be aware there is a good chance that they will contain asbestos

No you can't leave them down and screed over? Ask Amtico !!!
You have to take them up. Yes they can contain a small amount of asbestos which you get guidelines on how to take them up safely online.
You need then to remove the old adhesive then prime the floor and use a smoothing screed compound.
Laying any LVT flooring like Amtico the prep is as important as laying the floor.
I'd get a local professional to have a look and give you some advice.
